stricter gun control laws and stricter privacy measures. at the height of the economic crisis three years ago, president obama announced a 26 member jobs council as a way to get leaders and great business minds together to fix the jobs crisis. if 21 million americans still unemployed or underemployed, why hasn't this group held an official meeting in more than a year? good question. and for some answers let's bring in our political panel angela mcglowan, and a former chief of staff to joe manchin. it boggles the mind, the president with a jobs council the last year january, 2012. unemployment tad, angela and chris, 8.5% and now fallen to 7.8%, but while it's a good thing it's falling, there are till 21 million unemployed so unemployment has not fallen far enough. the light bulb has to go off. what progress is the job council making when creating more jobs? >> it's not made much progress and are we surprised that the president has not met with his jobs council in one year? this administration has been about political gesture, political manipulation, blame games, but what has really been do

of an inaugural speech, what do you think the american people want to hear in president obama's second inaugural speech on monday? >> you know, if you think back four years ago, the country was full of hope. it was a real celebration. it was an historic moment. we were maturitying our first african-american president. there was a sense that they were on the verge of a great time of hope. things are definitely different now. we've got a divided country. it's a less historic moment. we got a lot of folks still looking for jobs and can't find them. we've got partisan politics and a paralyzed congress. and i think the president faces a real challenge of trying to unite americans, trying to move beyond the partisan divide, trying to communicate with those who didn't vote for him that he understands that he's also their president. >> arthel: with that laundry list of hurdles and in mind, it is a laundry list and you highlighted them quite well, but here is the deal w that in mind, is president obama's second inaugural speech a bigger challenge then than the first one? >> absolutely. the funny part is,

cuts. there again what cuts would those be but president obama as we know he increased the debt by $6 trillion in his if you are four years. some say that administration overspent by one trillion a year every year since he's been in office. now she demanding the get ceiling to be increased again. do you think he will be listen to the 69% that say only after major cuts? >> he already said he doesn't think anything should be tied to the debt ceiling. it's something you shouldn't play with the full faith and credit of the united states. what is interesting about this, coming out of the republican retreat that just occurred, there are some republicans within the republican house, republican caucus who actually agree with him on the sense that you don't play with the debt ceiling as the point to which to make cuts. there are other issues coming up like the continuing resolution and sequester cuts where they would like to make their last stand there for cutting getting spending cuts and allow on temporary extension without not much attached to it. >> heather: let's talk about the economy. t
